What is the Patient Participation Group?

The Lawson Practice Patients Participation Group (L3PG) was formed in 2008. The group meets monthly to exchange and discuss views about the services provided in the Lawson Practice and to develop projects to support the patient community. 

Dr Jonathon Tomlinson meets with a diverse group of patients from the Lawson Practice who represent a mix of gender, ethnic groups and age groups – and between them have experienced most of the services offered by the practice. We would welcome additional members to join our group, especially patients with young families and those who can represent the ethnic diversity of the Practice population.

Getting in touch with the Lawson Practice Patients Participation Group (L3PG)

We would very much like to hear from patients. We discuss the Lawson Practice and the services provided, but it is not a place where individual patients personal issues are addressed. The Patient Participation Group (PPG) may be contacted by leaving a written note with the practice receptionists.

If you are interested in joining the group please do let the reception staff know and we will contact you to let you know more about what sort of things are done by the PPG.

You can also register with a virtual (online group) below. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
